Honoring and Supporting Our Veterans
Jupiter FL - November 11, 2020 - With so much going on in our world today, it’s heartwarming to see kindhearted individuals and companies caring for others during tough times. Even though 2020, has been rough on everyone, contractors and suppliers alike are still finding ways to thank veterans for their service.
One of the most well-known veteran programs is the ‘Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project,’ a nationwide effort to show gratitude to veterans by giving them new roofs. Since its inception in 2016, the program has provided more than 200 military members new roofs. Owens Corning partners with Purple Heart Homes to locate veterans in need and then selects one of its Platinum Roofing Contractors to donate the labor.
Here are some of our previous feel good stories involving veterans working in our much-loved industry as well industry support for our amazing heroes.
